U.S. Open Fashion Dimes & Crimes: Day 1

It’s smooth sailing for Billy-Ho, Puma’s thoughtful kicks, DJ is Aces yet again, JT feeds the wolf, and Ryo’s heist-gone-wrong. GolfThreads breaks down the best and worst looks from Thursday at LACC.

Fashion Dimes

Keith Mitchell (Sid Mashburn & FootJoy)

The Vegas odds that Keith Mitchell would be the first “Dime” were something like -10000. These light blue linen trousers are simply elegant. I recently purchased a similar belt and now I need to add a pair of these tabbed-front, wide-cuff pants to wear it with!

Over the past few years, FootJoy has dominated the headlines with their limited-edition shoe (and apparel) drops for each major. This time they celebrate the past 100 years with a reboot of an iconic shoe style that was laced up by Johnny Miller when he won the U.S. Open 50 years ago. I thought Abraham wore them best.

Don’t sleep on the apparel from the FootJoy Centennial Collection! This Lisle Polo with its 4-button placket has a vintage vibe with a modern twist that will keep it in style for at least another 100 years.

Talk about timeless style! Dustin Johnson always looks “Aces.”

Billy Horschel (Ralph Lauren Golf & FootJoy)

O Captain! My Captain! Billy-Ho owns these sailboat-print trousers. No one, and I mean no one, does pattern-pants better than Skipper Billy.

Wyndham Clark (Municipal & FootJoy)

Clearly, Wyndham Clark has a better eye for fashion than I do. I never would have picked out this Municipal Salmon Tech Camo Polo, but when I saw him wear it with these grey slacks, I loved it! There is a reason he earned a Threadie!

Justin Thomas (Greyson Clothiers & FootJoy)

These Glasseye Pink Montauk Trousers are sophisticatedly bold! And the patent leather on the heel of the FJ x Todd Snyder Premiere Series feeds the black “wolf” polo nicely, wouldn’t you say?

Rickie Fowler (Puma Golf)

Puma did a dynamite job on the custom kicks for their players. They partnered with seven artists to create incredibly thoughtful and creative hand-painted shoes for the U.S. Open. Each pair was unique to reflect the players’ individual inspiration for the week.

I just love the center stripe on this Chervo polo, especially on the backswing. It makes for a really cool visual that screams “power” and “grace.”

Joaquín Niemann (Adidas Golf)

Adidas calls this color, Arctic Night. I call it a “Dime.”

Fashion Crimes

Adam Schenk

This busy belt and shirt combination is a no-go for me, bro. Surprisingly, Adam makes this mistake quite often.

Andrew Putnam

This pains me. It really does because Andrew Putnam is a genuinely nice guy. But this fit ain’t so nice.

David Horsey

I cannot tell if this polo is inspired by Jackson Pollock’s “splatter art” or a distant galaxy. Regardless, I wish this shirt would go far, far away.

Ryo Ishikawa

Typically, Ryo is a standout. However, it looks like he broke into Adam Scott’s closet and stepped on a box of melted red, white, and blue popsicles as he high-tailed it out of there.

  1. I would like to add Rory’s pants as a crime. They were toooo tight. So tight that you could see the line of the bottom of his undershorts and the complete shape of his leg. Really tight pants do not look good on anyone, but especially men.
